I searched for this to verify the lyrics, but didn't find it anywhere (not even Google). I remember it as:

I've been having trouble meeting Mary/
'Cause Mary's ma and pa don't care for me/
So to save a fight and keep everything alright/
I've been meeting Mary at the zoo.

On Monday I met Mary at the camels/
'Cause Mary likes the animals, you see/
Tuesday by the bears and Wednesday by the hares/
And Thursday by the deer my dear you see.

On Friday I met Mary by the monkeys/
Swinging on their little rings of brass/
And Saturday I met Mary by the don-keys/
And that's where I got Mary by the . . . as you desire/
And that's where I got Mary by the zaz-ooo-zazzzz.

It's in there somewhere, but I suspect you've seen this already. Good luck.

Fighter Pilots Song Book (click)

Another in that, too. It's called Meeting Mary and is near page 16 or 17.

That was a tough one to find. I searched for "meeting mary at the zoo" and got the impression that it was either a bawdy military song, or a glee club song (which may or may not be clean), or both. A search for "ma and pa don't care for me" led me to horntip.com, which I believe is a mirror of the old "immortalia" Website that collected bawdy songs. Horntip has an OCR of a book of bawdy (mostly military) songs titled "The Three Hats, Vol. 2" (1950) and that's where I found the song. Lyrics are quite similar to what's posted above.

MARY, MARY

Now I've had lots of trouble meeting Mary;
Mary's ma and pa don't care for me.
So just to save a fight
And make everything all right
I'll meet my Mary by the zoo, you see.

Monday I'll have Mary by the camels,
That's the place where Mary ought to be,
Tuesday by the bears,
And Wednesday by the hares,
And Thursday by the deer, my dear, you see.

On Friday I'll have Mary by the donkeys,
That's the time when I'll have Mary by the----
AS YOU DESIRE IT.
That's the time when I'll have Mary by the —
ZAZZ-U-ZAZZ.

Here's the version from the Fighter Pilots Song Book, No. 77 Squadron (PDF) from the link above, also from horntip.com.

MEETING MARY

Lately I've trouble meeting Mary,
Mary's Ma and Pa don't care for me.
To save myself a fight
An' make everything alright
I've been meeting Mary by the zoo
Down by the zoo
On Monday I meet Mary by the camels
Mary loves the animals you see
Tuesday by the bears
And Wednesday by the hares,
And Thursday by the deer, my dear, you see.
On Friday I'll have Mary by the monkeys, Wod
Swinging on their little rings of brass
On Saturday I meet Mary by the donkeys
And that's where I get Mary by the ZAZZOOZAZZ.
